Lovely country getaway
Such a cute cottage, cosy and comfortable and very well-equipped - especially the kitchen. Lovely winter garden and abundant bird life. Great location near the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges and some great walking tracks. My teenage son and I needed to press the pause button for a couple of days and this was the perfect place for it.

A gorgeous little cottage
I stayed here with my adult son and it was just perfect. An easy drive to the attractions in Healesville and bushwalks around Warburton. After doing plenty of bushwalking during the day, it was lovely to relax, snug and warm, with the central heating and watch a movie in the evening with Netflix.

Peace and quiet.
Quirky. Extremely well fitted out. Set in rambling garden with loads of bird life. Cosy. Away-from-it-all. Everything is laid on including wood and kindling for the fire.
